Why Use Revelation Health Centre for ART Treatments?
And for those that aren’t quite familiar, here are a few things to know about Active Release Technique and how it may benefit you as a patient.
What is Active Release Technique (ART)?
Active Release Technique is a soft tissue system / movement-based massage technique used to treat problems with muscles, ligaments, nerves, tendons, joints and fascia. These problems typically result from the overuse of muscles in the body.
Overuse can occur in a variety of ways:
- Accumulation of tiny tears, or micro-trauma’s
- Acute conditions such as collisions, pulls and tears
- Not receiving enough oxygen in the muscle
Each of the conditions mentioned above can result in the development of dense, tough scar tissue in the affected area of the body. This causes the restriction of movement of existing tissues that need to move freely to function properly.
If left untreated, this scar tissue can build up and cause reduced size and strength in muscles, tendonitis on tendons in tension and pinch off nerves. Some common symptoms of these conditions include:
- Reduced range of motion
- Loss of strength
- Tingling and numbness
- Soft or sharp pain
How Does an ART Treatment at RHC Work?
First off, Dr. Battershill or Dr. Nicholls will perform a chiropractic patient examination then correlate their findings with your feedback to determine which parts of your body need Active Release Technique.
To do this, they will use their hands to evaluate for tightness, texture and movement of muscles then treat the affected regions using precisely directed pressure with specific movements from the patient.
Every patient is a unique case and will be treated accordingly to what they need.
